“We put people first and strive to make GBQ a fun place to work, offering career advancement and lifelong learning opportunities,” says David Bookbinder. “Happy associates mean happy clients.” The company’s leadership makes it clear to employees that work is important, but so is having a life outside of work, and one shouldn’t be sacrificed for the other. That’s why GBQ offers a flexible work environment that places trust in employees and has resulted in an above-industry-average retention rate. In fact, a number of internal groups help develop and retain the company’s A players. For example, GBQ’s women’s initiative was formed by female employees to enhance the gender diversity of the company’s workforce, including at the senior level.
“It’s all about trust, but it starts with the fundamental belief that people are a company’s most valuable asset.”
